    Today we’re going to share, from our MountainLore website, a tale of ghosts, spirit possession and evil that happened to a young radio disc jockey and his girlfriend in a house they were renting in Knoxville, Tennessee, in the early 1990’s. This is a true Appalachian horror story, told by one of the people who lived through it. Thanks for listening.
